great. nelson mandela became one of the greatest. >> so we heard president obama talking to chris matthews about the importance with the connection with the men people. what was your take? >> i thought it was a fascinating interview. i like to hear the president when he expands on his terms on some level. but i'm going to be honest, i'm a big chris matthews fan. that was the softest voice i ever heard chris matthews speak in. you know, look, i imagine, these interviews when they are done on the other side the folks on the right want to hold the president accountable. the president made an illusion that many msnbc viewers are frustrated from the left. i would like an interview where it wasn't sitting down, letting the president say what he wants to say, but holding him accountable for the frustrations from the party who peel feels he hasn't done enough, whether it's on holding the banks account annual. things that he has the power to do. i would have liked to have seen more of that. >> let's play out a clip. you talk about how he was energized by the college audience he was in fron
for the politics lead. first rule about re-branding obama care, you do not talk about obama care. today the white house launched a three-week blitz on the public's perception of the affordable care act. because, according to press secretary jay carney, obama care does not exist anymore. here's what he told cnn's jim acosta. >> jim, i, first of all, there's not an insurance policy called obama care. i think it's important to your viewers that they understand they're purchasing private insurance. >> still, the president didn't shy away from the term today when he was defending the law. >> that seems to be the only alternative that obama care's critics have is, let's just go back to the status quo because they sure haven't presented an alternative. >> so what's in a name? let's bring in our panel, editor of the "weekly standard," bill kristol, former arkansas senator and chairwoman of the it's my business coalition, blanche linco lincoln, and washington bureau che chief for "usa today" susan page. former president bill clinton is slapping down reports a few weeks ago he was trying to give hillary cl
. and you are able to afford rent. but you know, president obama always talks about wanting to grow the economy from the middle class out, not from the top down. when you look at this jobs report, are there other weaknesses that you see? >> i just think that in general, the big weakness here is we still don't have enough jobs. 200,000's a great number but realistically, at this point in this recovery, we need to start worrying about is that going to be a high water mark as opposed to a step up to like 300,000, 400,000 a month which is what would really again, create the kind of pressure upward that we're just getting everybody a raise, basically. >> jim tankersley, thank you so much. we appreciate it. you look very sharp. i appreciate the beard as well. >> you should try it. >>> coming up on "the lead," he was in the oval office while nelson mandela sat in a prison cell. coming up next, we have former president jimmy carter who will share his memories of the south african leader with you and me. >>> plus, you might think partisan politics couldn't taint the legacy of an internationa
of here. warp speed. ♪ >>> welcome back. president obama talking up the merits of a minimum wage hike in washington. john harwood joining us about what the president's been saying. why now? why the timing? >> president obama is trying to get out of the defensive crouch he's been with the struggles over the healthcare.gov website. now that the administration believes it has turned around that website, it's trying to go on offense and stalk about his economic agenda for narrowing income inequality. part of that is health care itself. part of that is investments and infrastructure and education. part of it, as the president said in the speech today at center for american progress, is a raise in the minimum wage. >> last month voters in new jersey decided to be the 20th state to raise theirs even hi high higher. that's why the d.c. council decided to do it, too. i agree with those voters. i'm going to keep pushing until we get a higher minimum wage for hard working americans across the entire country. >> note, president obama invoked new jersey, the state of governor chris christie, who m
. >> people talk about thee end, generosity from the u.s. and others is whye hav made this pro has president obama done as much as his predecessor? >> it's very phenomenal tha aids initiative and for global fund, which the u.s. participates with many other countries in giving. and bush took the leadership, but he had democrats really supporting him. now you've got president obama taking the lead, taking this to a new level and he's got strong republican support. so even though it's kind of exceptional, it's really made a huge difference that everyone's come together to have the u.s. lead the way. >> you are incredibly focused on the issue of giving. you have pledged along with warren buffett and mark zuckerberg to give a majority of your wealth to philanthropy. forbes lists you as the richest person in america at $72 billion. a lot of people ask this question. have you decided how much you are going to leave to your children? >> well, certainly melinda and i think that kids starting off with $1 billion or some huge -- any huge amount of wealth is not necessarily in their interest as well as
care act, obama care right now and people are talking about it all over the country and it's a great opportunity for republicans. for to us have a huge year like we did in 1994 we'll have to have the sort of alternatives that bill is talking about. do you hear that, whether it's republican governor's association or in washington now, there is that understanding. i would be stunned if you didn't see a variety of alternatives. >> david gregory for those running for re-election and all the negative messages that are in this narrative right now in terms of obama care how fair are they and how hard of a slog will it be for the white house to try to turn this around? >> i think it will be difficult. ultimately they have to prove successful with the website. they have to have more positive stories that flood the marketplace and the media. look at story after story, morning after morning we're having this conversation of what the difficulties are, what the andy poling is, what we simply are confused by. they are going the need so much success even that's going to lag before they get to a pla
's cardinal dolan on "meet the press" saying we don't like obama care anymore. >> the more the pope talks, the more the cardinals will understand it's god's will. unfortunately clergy people have to be concerned with their congregation. if we have the pope, we wouldn't have cuts in food stamps, we would have immigration, we would have health care, kids would be educated, we wouldn't have two million people locked up in jail and we wouldn't have drones destroying the lives of people that we don't know. god bless the pope. and i'm glad the cardinal hears him. i wish other religions would hear them, because there's a vacuum in congress. capitalism is the best thing in the world, but it's not set up to take care of the poor. >> congressman charlie rangel, great to have you here. i think you can easily invest in green ba nananabananas. thanks for your time. >>> joining me now, editor of the "washington post" wonkblog, ezra klein. good to see you, buddy. it was a big weekend for the administration. now they're touting these big gains, coming out with nbc news being able to verify these numbers.
stopped voting on defunding obama care, although we've been talking a lot about how congress doesn't seem to get anything done, ryan. let me switch gears, because the house is scheduled to vote today on the undetectable firearms act, making it illegal to manufacture guns that don't have any metal in them and can get smuggled through metal detectors. it's obviously a major concern because of 3-d printers able to print these plastic guns. let me play for both of you what steve israel told me yesterday. >> i have been on the lead at renewing extending the undetectable firearms act because it's not a good idea to allow the bad guys to sneak plastic guns through metal detectors at airports. i am hopeful that we'll be able to do at least that. >> steve israel, obviously, ryan, a big supporter of this and one of the major proponents. is it going to get done? >> it doesn't look like the more advanced version of it is going to get done. and it's just mind-blowing. the dispute right now is over how much metal and what type of metal to put into one of these plastic guns, because the current law basi
. >>> conspiracy theorists, it's time for the poli side bar. president obama made a little history at last night's kennedy center honors. he became the first president to talk about area 51, at least in public. >> when you first become president, one of the questions that people ask you is what's really going on in area 51? when i wanted to know, i called shirley maclaine. i think i just became the first president to ever publicly mention area 51. >> kentucky senator rand paul admitting yesterday that there's at least one person who doesn't want him to run for president, and that person would be his wife. >> i am seriously thinking about it, but i'm also very serious about the family considerations and, you know, just look at what happens daily to any politician in america. you talk about how uncivil things are. >> all right, it's not a joke actually. what did president obama, kathleen sebelius and senator ted cruz have in common? they're all on the short list as the top ten name for "time's" person of the year. the winner will be unveiled on wednesday, and i think the pope's gonna get it. waiti
who have gathered in the soccer stadium so there could be a moment where president obama and raul castro may shake hands, may talk, who knows. >> be interesting to watch if they shake hands. that was the big thing, the gore people wanted no physical contact or substantive communications because of the relationship between the two countries. obviously, you can get as close as we are at an event like that and we will see what happens. you watch something like that. for the former presidents to be together, you know this because you have been at big events, the opening of presidential libraries here at home, the king hussain funeral, you had a group like that. the pope john paul ii funeral, you had several presidents together. it's a security challenge, number one, then the question is how do they work amongst themselves. it's an exclusive club. we do know on this flight over, the president is in his office, george and laura bush have the medical suite which is -- >> on air force one. >> on air force one. they can recon figure it, make it more comfortable and secretary clinton is in
. that's always a losing strategy. >> john cornyn, he was trying the benghazi controversy to obama care and talking about how the white house has taking lying to a whole new level. this comes on the heels of him tweeting after the interim deal with iran was announced. amazing that the white house -- what the white house will do to distract attention from obama care. >> man, i mean, that was -- >> he's known to be critical but -- >> here's the thing. john cornyn is essentially a reasonable guy. he runs the senatorial committee. the tea party has criticized him intensely. this statement is outrageous for two reasons. lying to a whole new level? it's not that he's admitting that the president lies and people in washington lie. that's not a news flash. to show no historical memory, elevate for partisan purposes the obama administration of the worst lying in presidential history is ignorant, it's offensive talking down to the american people. second thing is this, for republicans right now, if they're trying to win a republican primary, they're rewarded for being responsible. you throw red m

for everything. >> dan, that gets at what susan and brad were talking about the idea of can he recover? among obama voters, was it surprising that the folks still hold out hope that he can recover from this. view it as a bump in the road. the question is what gets him out? health care working? is it the improving economy or is he divorced from the economy? >> it's really an important question because as susan said, it is difficult to really bounce back. if the economy does improve, that will help. no question about that. one of the things we have seen in public opinion over the last 60 days really is that this kind of base he had beneath him which is that people thought he was an honest president or a strong leader, some of that eroded significantly and i think that's the question as to whether even if the health care law seems to be working pretty well and even if the economy comes back, whether this sense of him as a weak president or somebody who was too detached has taken hold and it does divorce him from the forces that are changing the economy. >> fred, when you look at 2014, i know tha
were very similar. president obama just came off a brutal fight with republicans over the debt ceiling. he faced reelection in the year and he was doing something to jack up his own approval and to also talk about what his presidency was about and to put some firmness behind that. he's doing that again and he's had a rough six weeks over the obama care website. he's trying to reframe this debate as they head into the midterm elections to be broader than just obama care, democrats realize that if this is about obama care in the mid-term elections it's not a good issue for them and even though we see positive things going on, they want things to be about more than that. for some, this is a signal about getting his mojo back. >> the president's economic policies improve government reliance rather than economic mobility and rather than tackling income inequality by lifting people up, he's been fixated on taxing some down. >> why do you think republicans seem so fixated on the government reliance narrative and this tax and spend. this tax and spend phrase that they of the to use over and ov
with honey in it. rikola. that's all i've got. >> you're going to be a bumblebee. >> let's talk about the polls. i get it. some of the polls from harvard university. do you disapprove or approve of his job performance? 54% disapprove. do you approve of obama care? 57% disapprove. are you likely to enroll in obama care? 45% unlikely. 22% likely. is that what this is about, chris? >> it is. one of my favorites in that harvard university and student politics poll is where 47% say they would recall the president from office if they could. they would take him out of his job today if they could. by the time we got to the obama care crash, we had six months of the worst beginning of a presidential second term since richard nixon. it was bad. this presidency was off on the wrong track. it was off on the wrong track on the nsa which was a massive breach of trust. this much spying was a massive breach of trust with the voters. young v those issues. they live online, on the internet, on their devices. the president was snooping. he deceived them about that. that breach of trust might have been f
. and the president very interestingly at one point, brooke, talked about the term obama care. people in washington have been saying the president hasn't been using the word obama care as much lately. what's the deal with that? the president used it during this address to younger folk s here at the white house. here's what the president had to say. >> i know people call this law obama care. and that's okay. because i do care. and i do. i care about you. i care about families. i care about americans. but no matter how much i care, the truth is that for your friends and your family, the most important source of information is not going to be me. it's going to be you. they are going to trust you. >> so a little bit of the president picking himself up, dusting himself off from that disast rr rollout of healthcare.gov. no briefing here at the white house today, but on a conference call with reporters, officials with the administration, they were talking about how they also believe that enrollment is picking up, brooke. that is really the best news that this white house can be hoping for right now, for a
those talks. >>> the white house in full holiday mode. first lady michelle obama showing off the decorations. 70,000 visitors expected the next two weeks and treated to two life sized replicas of the family's portuguese waterdogs made out of black satin ribbons. have you heard about the latest white house scandal? one of the real first dogs sonny got a little excited yesterday and knocking over that little lovely, adorable 2-year-old girl from alabama. we have photos of the incident. coming up here, this is before the crime in question. we have another picture here showing you, there they are. they look friendly here. >> can we have the other photo? >> there it is! crime scene photo right there. >> poor little girl. finally that is my favorite photo. >> she gets a paper rose there from the first lady. >> she is fine. >> you never know how that affects a little girl over time. >> i'm sure she will remember the hug and the dog and be okay. >>> coming up -- >> we legally have to say trontstront toronto's crack smoking mayor. >> may not have told everything. the exclusive allegat
's make them functional. >> what you were talking about is repealing obama care. >> i don't know. obama -- there's no mandate in corporations now. >> i would call it limiting the damage, start moving toward a free market-based solution. >> none of it is going to work. if young people get to opt out. i'm saying, the only way actuarily it -- >> they're going to pay the penalty which won't be collected. and we've seen memos, they have no method of collecting this thing. and when you can buy insurance regardless of pre-existing conditions, why buy it ahead of time? and so that -- those are the incentives -- >> your 27-year-old example, he won't buy health care. >> it's $100 penalty or something like that right now? >> but it's going to be 2.5% of their income in two or three years. this isn't about choice, this isn't about freedom. this is about coercion. i think americans are going to take a look at this and they're going to see it's a disaster. they are going to demand change. and i think the responsible thing for republicans to do is do everything we can to limit the damage, try to prese
house said that the president didn't know his uncle, now we learn that mr. obama not only knew him but he lived with him. the question is, is this a big deal? we're talking about it right now to break it down a historian at princeton and david gergen who joins us from atlanta, he is a cnn senior political analyst and a former white house adviser to four presidents. gentlemen, thank you for being here. david, let's start with you. you know what it's like to work at a white house and deal with media questions especially on sensitive issues, how, however, does a white house put out false information like it did on the president's relationship to an uncle? >> well, let me say for beginners, i don't think this is a big deal. i think it's a modest deal. i think it reflerkts a sloppiness within the white house operation. but we've had other presidents who have had relatives who have rather inconvenient histories, let us say, and there's always been a fairly strong effort by the white house staff to distance the president from that inconvenient relative if possible. that seems to what has
that we'll broaden the appeal of our party, frankly, is to talk about how conservative solutions are the answer. because, what we have seen now is big government at work by the obama administration. and we have seen an committee that is lackluster at best and president that even today has been out there talking about how poorlily the committee has performed under his watch. >> leader cantor, nice to see you, sir. thank you. >> thank you. >> new information tonight that is going to rattle the president and has to do with the young and the healthy. the ones the president needs to fund obamacare. do they like obamacare? and do they still like the president? that's next. hey kevin...still eating chalk for heartburn? yeah... try new alka seltzer fruit chews. they work fast on heartburn and taste awesome. these are good. told ya! i'm feeling better already.

talks about our revolutionary right to over throw it. >> that was whether or not president obama was holding up his constitutional duty to faithfully execute the nation's laws and what the consequences are if he is not. and the testimony got fierce, at times. >> i agree entirely that the president cannot simply refuse to enforce a law for policy reasons. >> the center of gravity is shifting. and that makes it unstable. and within that system you have the rise of an uber-presidency. there could be no greater danger for individual liberty. >> if the people come to believe the government is no longer constrained by the laws, they will conclude that neither are they. >> as james madison warned, the accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive and judiciary in the same hands may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny. >> joining me now, republican congressman bob goodlatte, the chairman there you just saw in the meeting there today. mr. chairman, that is rather extraordinary to see folks from all stripes, all ideological stripes, including the very left leaning lawy
, congresswoman. >> if you want to talk about a war on women, look no further than this health care law. >> that's right. the gop wants you to believe president obama's health care law is the real war on women. oh, the irony. especially since just last week we learned that gop men are being tutored on how to talk to women. and according to a staff at one of those meetings, quote, some of these guys have a lot to learn. where would they possibly get that idea? >> if it's a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down. >> even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that god intended to happen. >> the incidents of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low. >> well, maybe they can get some pointers on how to talk to women from the real boss of the party. listen to what he said today. >> -- yourself staring looking at, casually glancing at a woman. but you know that it's now socially taboo. you shouldn't be doing it. and you think everybody is noticing you doing it and condemning you in their minds. you walk up to the woman and say,
to the republicans here. they have the country responding to and talking about the three things i've just pointed out when we have had 40, what, 5, 6 months of private sector oh job growth. when we have added 7 million jobs since president obama inherited the great recession. now that we've got unemployment down, according to the bureau of labor statistics, 7%, arguably, still in double digits. and they've got us believing that we're just not doing -- well, actually, we're doing too much for those who are in need. the president is talking about republicans like rand paul, from kentucky, who thinks he should run the world. and also rob portman of ohio, who is the doctor of silver spoons. what would you expect from bush's former budget director? on sunday, rand paul said he would have no problem cutting off unemployed americans. >> when you allow people to be on unemployment insurance for 99 weeks, you're causing them to become part of this perpetual unemployed group in our economy, and it really -- while it seems good, it actually it does a disservice to the people you're trying to help. i don't doubt
there is a role for politicians to play here? the piece talks about the distrust in washington and of our leaders. starts at the top and continues thereon. >> listen, way before barack obama said you can keep your insurance, period, there was congressmen saying, listen, we'll have a law on drugs. then you find out they are drug addicts. or every young child will be tested at school to make sure they are not doing alcohol. then you find out the congressman was drunk when he voted on that. right now any leader we have, it's hard to find trust when you do not have trust in the leadership of oh this country we live in. i think it starts at the top. somebody at the top has to say, stop, we have to get back to basics and who we are. we don't have it now. >> it's an interesting piece that suggests it's too late for this generation. we have to wait for the next one. hopefully that's not true. >> megyn, my father said something else. we have a chance to start america all over again. >> good to see you, sir. >> good to see you. >> coming up, could your holiday gifts be delivered by drone to your front door
. and splint ter them. >> ah, yes, president obama as media critic. i personally love when any president jabs the press because it gets us talking about fairness, both the medias and the administrations. eric dagen is the critic for the npr. jane, you used to be a long time fox news contribute for, so i wonder, do you think the president's right? i think he believes it. he was speak to an audience of young people at my university and he was saying that the idealism of young people was a great thing, clearly he wanted to address that audience and it is true that the media are divided i'd logically in cable use. i think he didn't want to call out fox necessarily because they haven't figured out how to deal with fox, frankly, but there's splits in the media. >> i think it's hypocritical to come on a channel that's known for catering to liberals and criticize the press for being div divisive. >> i spent 250 pages in my book last year that came out last year, race baiter talking about this exact issue, that there are cable channels that segment the audience and one way they do that is by pitting p
a couple of things to talk about. i want to ask you about the big front page politico piece. the paper tiger. glenn thrush's piece. >> glenn has been looking at the weakness of the obama cabinet. there's frustration in the cabinet and on capitol hill. they are putting a republican in the cabinet. a defense secretary. and people feel sees disappointed folks and at a time how he'll define how to be his defense secretary. he's leading the department in a period of entrenchment. does he fight those? does he go along with the white house in trying to trim spending as much as obama would like. it's interesting to see how much frustration there is in the cabinet not just hagel, but also sebelius. one of the reasons when you have these incidents like you do with the health care system -- >> why is general frustration. inside the white house do they think they are incompetent. >> they are not living up to standards with hagel. he's kind of lackluster when they thought he would come in there and be much more forceful. >> why did they think that? if they asked anyone in his own party who was a re
to not only prevent him from doing, but to repeal it, and as steve talked about, have nothing in the alternative to present once they do successfully repeal it, which they won't. >> president obama said something today that builds on your point, steve. >> if despite all the millions of americans are benefitting from it, you think the law is a bad idea, you have to tell us what you would do specifically to cut costs, cover more people, make it more secure, you can't say it was working with 41 million people without health insurance. you can't just say the system was working when you had a whole bunch of people who thought they had decent insurance and when they got sick, it wasn't there for them, or they were left in tens of thousands of dollars in out of pocket cost that were impossible to pay. >> that's your point rlsh that this republican party is no longer willing, even at the fringes of the republican party, to talk about those kinds of issues. >> there's no argument about what the president said. clearly, the american health plan wasn't working, from an inflation perspect
.c. she talked to piers morgan of how she would advise president obama on this health care mess. take a listen. >> i don't think we have seen a disaster like this in awhile. i think it is very problematic buzz this is the president's signature piece of legislation. i think everybody agrees that the initial rollout has been a mess. the president has apologized for it. i think the question is going to be how he moves past this. >> the problem to me seems he has said we have a few things wrong. the real thing he got wrong is he went out there front and center and repeatedly told a lie. let's watch this clip here showing him in action. >> you like your plan? keep your plan. if you like your plan, you can keep your plan. if you like your private health insurance plan, you can keep it. >> this was mr. transparent. this was mr. i'm going to change washington. look at me, you can trust me. >> yes. >> that, to me, is damaging to the obama brand. this is all about technology. this is the geek president. he wins with the most underground internet campaign imaginable and he can't rollout his flag
always talking about big government and the problems with the obama care rollout. and if we can put it on the screen, here was his answer. and the challenge, i think, we have going forward is not so much my personal management style or particular issues around white house organization. it actually has to do with what i refer to earlier is, we have some of the big agencies, some of which are outdated, some of which are not designed properly. wow! that's the greatest news of the week. he's saying big government is like an old de soto at a time when we want to drive efficient sports cars. the only question i have is, isn't obama care just another one of those? back to you. >> all right, rick, thank you so much. rick santelli in chicago. >>> nobody puts baby in the corner without an -- without an ipad. [ laughter ] stay tuned for this, the latest in toddler technology in just a moment. hi honey, did you get the toaster cozy? yep. got all the cozies. [ grandma ] with new fedex one rate, i could fill a box and ship it for one flat rate. so i knit until it was full. you'd be crazy not to.
